    The Auction

    Relevant passages:

    "It currently houses 1 Iguana, 1 Golden Gecko, 1 Large Tiger Salamander, 1 Blue Tailed Skink, Several Anoles, 2 Common Pond Frogs, 2 Gourami Fish, 1 Fantail Goldfish, and 1 Algae Eater."

    and with all that in it...

    "The nice thing about using real dirt and plants is that the reptile waste is absorbed into the dirt and becomes fertilizer for the plants so there is no cleaning needed!" Hmmm.

    "The Reptiles, Fish, and Amphibians named above ARE NOT included in this auction, REPEAT you are not bidding on the creatures, you are only bidding on the cage and accessories listed. However if you purchase the cage you can have them if you want them, I have no place to keep them without the cage and I do not want to destroy them."

    I don't get people.....

    I don't get people either! So if someone buys this enclosure, what did this kid intend on doing with the reptiles since they will no longer have a home?

    It's obviously someone who did on an impulse. The tank doesn't even look a month old and all of the animals look young as well. There's just too many things wrong with that ad...

    I guess he's just not allowed to sell animals on EBay, so this is his way of getting around it...

    What in the world is he thinking, with all those animals in there?

    We'll see if he responds to me. I tried to be nice and tell him to read some caresheets before buying any more reptiles.

    He told me the tank is huge and there is more than enough room for all those species. Also that all their care requirements are met and the've been in there for a year with no problems. Hmmm some people.

    That's just out of hand!! I don't understand people either. They just have a different perspective on things i guess!

    umm the auction is over but i thought you were never able to house the different animals together is this true?

    It is best not to house reptiles of different species due to the different husbandry requirments. But some people choose not to listen to great advice.
